Drug dogs used in search at Chippewa Falls Middle and High Schools

Officers say while other area schools also conduct these types of searches, it hasn't been done in Chippewa Falls for many years.

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU)-- A canine drug search was conducted Tuesday at the Chippewa Falls Middle and High Schools.

Chippewa Falls Police say, as part of a safety procedure, K-9 units from Eau Claire and Altoona searched the schools Tuesday morning. Students were inside classrooms while the dogs and officers searched the school.

Superintendent, Dr. Brad Saron, says the random search is an effort to be pro-active and will become a regular part of school safety procedures. Police say they didn't find any drugs during the searches.
